Graduating college. Landing your first job. Considering a job change—or even a career change. When we find ourselves at such crossroads, it is important to stop and reflect before taking the next step. In Crossroads: Navigating Your Calling and Career, author Colin Creel seeks to navigate the murky waters of career and calling by looking at the biblical view of calling, recognizing that each of us is here for a reason, and offering practical guidelines on seizing career opportunities.
In addition to the author’s thoughts, readers will encounter advice from leaders in business, Christian ministry, the arts, and education. Each chapter includes “Points to Ponder,” encouraging readers to go deeper in their thoughts and discussions on the subject of calling and career. Readers are reminded that none of us is here by accident, and there are no accidental occupations. Everyone must pursue the talents and gifts God has afforded them.
